2021.4.27 and 2021.4.28 | 12p.m. to 1:30p.m. | A Toolbox for Trauma | 3 Contact Hours
What do you need to know in order to treat trauma? A great deal of knowledge and years of experience? Perhaps, but we all have to start somewhere. Since trauma is so common – half of women and 60% of men report an experience of trauma in their lives – and is so often a trigger for mental health problems, how do we begin to think about treatment? Do we start with relationships, techniques, evidence-based treatments, or elsewhere? What are the best screens and assessments to use? What are the essentials that you need to know in order to treat trauma, complex trauma, and their sequelae? This presentation attempts to answer those questions and more. It dives into evidence-based treatments and treatment-based evidence. It covers essential techniques that cross between treatments, and treatments that are essential to learn over the course of several years. It outlines what you need to learn to become a traumatologist, while simultaneously teaching you some advanced techniques to help you get started. These are the things you need in your trauma toolbox.
You will learn to:
- Select the indicated evidence-based trauma screens for the populations you serve.
- Identify at least four techniques common to most evidence-based treatments for PTSD.
- Select the indicated evidence-based treatments for each phase of trauma treatment.
